Dan + Shay to drop debut album April 1

Rising duo Dan + Shay are looking to the skies as they set the release date for their (yet untitled) debut album. Entirely written by Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney, the Warner Bros. Records release will hit retail and digital outlets April 1.

On the heat of their Top 20 single "19 You + Me," Dan + Shay recently swiped an ACM Awards nomination for Vocal Duo of the Year. They face off against the cross-over power of Florida Georgia Line, Thompson Square, Love & Theft and Big & Rich.

On February 1, the hit-makers made their Grand Ole Opry debut. In addition to a rousing performance of their current radio single, they performed "First Time Feeling," a track from their upcoming set.

The album is produced by Smyers and co-produced by Scott Hendricks and Nashville songwriter, Danny Orton.

"This is NOT an April Fools' Day Prank! Our album will be released via @WMNashville on April 1, 2014!" the duo shared on Tuesday (Feb. 4) via Twitter.

Dan + Shay's music video for plucky "19 You + Me" was filmed in Myrtle Beach and directed by Brian Lazzaro and edited by Patrick Tracy. So far, the song has sold a quarter million copies and has been the most added track for a duo so far in 2013.

In support of their new music, Dan + Shay will join Hunter Hayes out on the road on the We're Not Invisible Tour, which launches on March 20. Later this summer, they will transition over to Blake Shelton and his Ten Times Crazier Tour for a slew of dates, starting in June.
